Halloween in M’Finda Kalunga Community Garden

From Debra Jeffreys-Glass organizer of the day:

“So many hands made the work much lighter, and the smiles on the faces of the children and adults served as proof of the day’s success. Thank you, In no particular order….. Bob -as always….being the major mover and shaker and inspiration for all we do. Jessica, for the leg work of gathering yummy treats and creating relationships with new and old neighborhood partners [Roni-Sue’s Chocolates, Ceci Cela Patisserie, Joey Bats Cafe, Formaggio NYC, Pan D’Avignon, Essex Olive and Spice, and Trapizzino]. Jen and K for getting the all important carrots (aka candy) for craft participants. Irit for making sure that our scarecrow had his straw innards, courtesy of Stanton St. CSA’s Farmer TedAmy and Ryan for building our scarecrow, general tidying, decorating and setup, and sign creation for the stations. Ted – amazing signage and the ever-popular gross-out station (eeeyew). Alex for prep work and day-of hauling tables and other assorted getting the place ready tasks. Jim – all around help with gathering materials, moving, shaking, and general handiness. Alisanne holding down the fort at the bag decorating table – the perfect entrance to the event! K, Jane, Ted, for supervising different stations throughout the day. Everyone who invited passersby into the garden to participate  in the festivities. Our local high school partners – Millennium and Emma Lazarus HS students – their enthusiasm and energy kept the day going from start to finish.

Thank you, thank you, one and all!  Until next year…
